Studies show that certain types of plastic can cause autism.
Check the bottom of drink/water bottles/tupperware/bottles before using. Look for a little triangle with arrows on it. If it says BPA Free that's awesome. Otherwise look for the little number in the middle of the triangle. Only buy/use if it's a 1 or a 2.

Nowadays, producers are getting much better at things like this. But you should always check anyways if it's something that concerns you.
Hope this helps!
